Kid-Friendly Chocolate Truffle Easter Eggs

The perfect DIY Easter treat to keep your kids entertained these school holidays!

With Easter less than a week away it’s time to get into the kitchen to whip up some delicious homemade chocolate Easter Eggs. I’m so excited to be able to to share the following recipe for my Chocolate Truffle Easter Eggs which I produced in collaboration with DEXUS Property Group’s Plumpton Marketplace. Truffles are a great kid-friendly recipe because there’s almost no stovetop cooking or oven baking involved. I can’t guarantee there won’t be mess but at least it will be a delicious mess. Keep scrolling to check out the recipe or download your free recipe card via the Plumpton Marketplace website here.

Use the best quality chocolate you can for best results.
Add cream.
Stir to combine.
It takes a while but keep stirring and…
…you’ll end up with a glossy ganache mixture.
Do the same for the white chocolate.
Roll into egg shapes then decorate with sprinkles, coconut, cocoa powder or your favourite coatings!
Chocolate Truffle Easter Eggs.
Prep Time 15 mins | Cooking Time 2 mins | Makes 8 dark and 8 white chocolate truffle eggs
Ingredients.
Dark Chocolate Easter Eggs
  • 150g dark chocolate
  • 150ml mL thickened cream
  • Sprinkles, desiccated coconut and cocoa powder to decorate
White Chocolate Easter Eggs
  • 150g white chocolate
  • 75 mL thickened cream
  • Sprinkles, desiccated coconut and cocoa powder to decorate
Method.

Make the ganache. Combine cream and dark chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in microwave for 15 seconds. Stir and repeat until chocolate has melted. Stir to combine, allow to cool, then refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. Repeat for the white chocolate mixture.

Roll the truffles. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Use two dessert spoons to shape tablespoonfuls of mixture into egg shapes. Scoop the mixture from one spoon to the next until you form a rough egg shape. Place on the prepared tray.

Decorate the eggs. Place sprinkles, desiccated coconut and cocoa powder onto individual plates. Use a spoon to roll eggs in the decorations, pressing well to coat. Place into an air-tight container and store in the fridge until ready to serve.

Brendon’s Tips.
  • These eggs are a great gift for family and friends and will last up to 1 week in the fridge – if they last that long.
  • This easy recipe is a great way to introduce your little chefs to baking. They’ll have lots of fun rolling out the chocolate and decorating their own eggs.
  • White chocolate contains a higher amount of milk solids than dark chocolate so you won’t need as much cream – otherwise your eggs will be too soft and won’t hold their shape when rolled.
